I heard some solo stuff from the pumpkins guy years ago that was a laid back radical departure from what the pumpkins sound like. Found that interesting just like Izzy Stradlins solo almbum ( from GNR ) that sounded like it could have easily been a Keith Richards solo album

Izzy and the Ju Ju Hounds! Rick Richards from Ga Satellites and frequent partner in crime with Pete Buck (REM) and Kevn Kinney. Good stuff. Talk is Cheap by keef (with Ivan Neville) is the best "stones" album since the mid-70s. Really want to see an X-Pensive Winos tour. Was a great show.

Yeah that was a fun album. I didn't realize the GA Satelites connection but I guess the GA connection makes sense with Peter Buck

What was (is) the guitarist in the expensive wino's Band. I've seen him in other projects like stevie nick's band. He alwats reminded me of a hipper Peter Frampton. Just wondering

That would be Waddy Wachtel, who I haven't seen nor heard from in a while. I recall him best as Warren Zevon's guitar player, but he did literally hundreds of tours with many west coast icons. Everly Brothers, Jackson Browne, Carole King, The Cowsills, Randy Newman...and was even on Bob's Heaven Help The Fool.

Background checking for Bohemian Grove Membership right now.

Ha! Bohemian Grove.

But found out another common cohort in the Wachtel circle co-produced a Hanson album - have Bob and Mickey gotten everyone into the grove yet????

After that Bobby video, I think we could all use a cremation of dull care....

There's some great audio and video links on the Waddy site. Click on the decade and scroll down. Lotsa stuff with Linda Ronstadt on her 76 tour.

Nice I was hoping there might be a G.D. connection
